I picked this up because I really like the collaborative works between Lincoln Child and Preston Douglas. However, I was very disappointed in this story. There was lots of description of the theme park but little depth in the characters and an extremely thin plot with almost laughable situations. Do yourself a favor and steer clear of this one. Whoever the reviewers are who enjoyed this book must have read a different book with the same title. I will continue to read the works written in collaboration with Mr. Douglas, however.

This was the first book I've read written by Lincoln Child by himself. I found it to be exciting. I found it hard to put down to tend to real life's requirements.

Read like a made-for-TV movie. Predictable plot, shallow characters and cheesey dialog.

Taught thriller that takes place in a futuristic amusement park. Overall I really enjoyed this one -- especially the descriptions of the park itself that utilized robotics and holograms as part of its 4 worlds. This was a great combination of science fiction and techno-thriller. I've read a couple of books by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child that I have enjoyed. This is the first I've read by Child on his own and would definitely recommend it. I have several more Preston/Child novels on my TBR shelf that I hope to get to soon.
